Yesterday marked the start of World Week for Animals in Laboratories, and if you were wondering how you can help, look no further! Obviously, shopping cruelty-free (and never purchasing products that are tested on animals) is the easiest way, but if you’re looking for more ways to make a difference, check this out:
Go vegan. Not only does eating meat cost billions of animals their lives, it also makes us sick. Experimenters then use these largely preventable diseases, such as obesity and heart disease, as an excuse to conduct cruel and deadly experiments on animals. Companies and the government also fund experiments to find ways to make factory-farmed animals grow larger faster.
Quit smoking. It may shock you, but companies like R.J. Reynolds, Lorillard, and Philip Morris continue to force rats to undergo nasty experiments in order to develop new cigarettes. Experimenters at universities also pump cigarette smoke into dogs’ lungs and addict pregnant monkeys and their babies to nicotine in order to study smoking-related diseases.
Spay, neuter, and adopt. Heartless vivisectors exploit the animal overpopulation crisis by purchasing homeless animals from shelters to torment and kill in their laboratories. Spaying and neutering your animal companions and promoting animal adoptions help to cut off this supply of cheap laboratory “equipment.” PETA’s recent success in stopping pound seizure in Utah saved countless animals from a painful death in a laboratory.
Don’t dissect! Every year, over ten million animals are killed for classroom dissections—while humane alternatives exist. These animals are stolen from the wild, purchased from shelters, or bred in warehouses like this one. Learn how you can help here.

I have watched many, many, videos and and seen stuff, I hope my grandkids will never experience the heartless “HUMANS” that can do these things to animals that do nothing but love us back, and “UNCONDITIONAL LOVE” You can’t tell ME that, another HUMAN THAT CAN GIVE ANOTHER HUMAN THAT?” I just don’t want to watch another painful animal be put through torture for our benefits……
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
